I don t know what to make of this Harrigan is one of my favorite authors his prose is beautifully formed Simplistic yet imaginary, and his strength and utter love of the Texas landscape is rather astounding I don t think any other author out there can describe the state and the longing for it when you re away, the suffering when you re in it, all while keeping the unique, strange, and violent history in the back of your mind at all times That being said, this is certainly a first novel Hi I don t know what to make of this Harrigan is one of my favorite authors his prose is beautifully formed Simplistic yet imaginary, and his strength and utter love of the Texas landscape is rather astounding I don t think any other author out there can describe the state and the longing for it when you re away, the suffering when you re in it, all while keeping the unique, strange, and violent history in the back of your mind at all times That being said, this is certainly a first novel His style is clear and it s neat to read this novel and see how his masterpiece Gates of the Alamo came into formation But this suffers from a few aspects for one thing, the plot is a bit slow Jacob s Well gives a great start to this novel and a great second half, but when it s not on the page the story manages to fizzle out My interest waned quite often I didn t find any of the characters particularly interesting or worth caring about Sam sort of meanders around, Libby wonders about boys the majority of the novel, and Rick doesn t seem to have much passion in what he does It just seems like a passing interest Also, he s dull It makes the ending of the novel which I found to be a great climax a bit strange given how the characters respond with one another I liked it Not my favorite and won t likely pick it up again, but it wasn t bad for an evening read session over the course of the week #Free E-pub Ú Jacob's Well ó Originally published in , Stephen Harrigan s passionate, emotionally intense second novel takes readers deep into the mysterious passageways of a Central Texas aquifer and of the human heart This edition includes a new afterword by the author An eloquent story circling around a natural well waiting for relationships to grow, curiosity to thrive, and the trials of life. Interesting short novel set in Austin and surrounding areas, and it gets that all very right Author has good, easy to follow style that mostly captures characters well, although it s a bit difficult to understand how two guys who are very interested in the same woman can be willing to spend so much time together with her, and get along so well Overall, however, it s a bit too sad and depressing, with characters who are rarely very happy.
